From the front desk to them walking me out this was a great experience for me. I'd never been sedated before (by anyone else:) and have always feared it. Everyone was friendly but not overly so and very professional. It went really smooth and I found out that demoral is awesome.

I was having an issue and really not feeling well. I called and left a message on Dr. Ravi's nurses line. When she called me back the same day he wanted me to come in the next morning for a procedure that totally fixed the problem.
